CD Reviews

A fabulous but under-promoted blues treasure!
David Thoburn | Reston, VA USA | 04/11/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was a next-door neighbor of the wonderful gracious man as a child in the 1960's. He deserves far more recognition than he receives. He should have 40 albums available, not four. If you like unpretentious, honest acoustic blues, it doesn't get any better than this!"
Authentic Old Time Piedmont Blues
Todd E. Garland | Webster Springs, WV United States | 03/15/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Unfortunately, we'll never again have the opportunity to hear Mr. Jackson perform, at least not in this world. I did, however, get to see him in a very tiny theater in southeast Kentucky. Afterward he was available in the lobby talking about music, the church, his family. I rememember him as a gentle and gracious man. Moreover for such a great blues writer and performer, he was so humble. And yet he had a powerful presence when singing and playing.

This CD is a very good representation of his singing and playing style. If you're interested in very authentic blues, this is a fantastic example of the Piedmont genre. I highly recommend this disc from a beautiful, beautiful soul. God bless, Mr. Jackson. Maybe someday I'll get to play with you in heaven."
Living Treasure

"John Jackson is an unparalleled instrumentalist, singer, and gentleman in the tradition of great blues men. It's evident in his music and in his demeanor. One should not miss the chance to see John Jackson perform or to listen to his recorded works. I consider myself lucky to have done both, and I will continue to do both when the occasion arises."
